A covered breezeway connects the garage and home.

The property boasts an exquisite touch—a restored tobacco barn alongside the main residence.


Special Features

To enhance insulation, spray insulation was applied, followed by drywall and rough-cut Hemlock, reinforced by insulated foam board. 

The interior walls of TG’s barndo showcase the rustic allure of Hemlock timbers, carefully arranged at 2 inches thick and 12 inches wide, extending up to 20 feet in length.

The spaces between are filled with foam insulation, exuding a cabin-like feel. 

Following this, a meticulous chinking process was employed to create a snug and cozy surface. 

The wood was meticulously coated with two layers of clear finishing, adding both aesthetic charm and protection to the interior walls.

This closet boasts natural wooden folding doors.

The barndominium’s ceiling boasts a rich aesthetic with espresso-stained wood planks, exuding warmth and sophistication. 

Complementing this stylish feature are sliding barn-style doors that harmoniously match the ceiling, contributing to the overall rustic charm and cohesive design of the space.

Instead of a pantry, TG repurposed the space behind the murphy door as an ammo storage room for his hunting endeavors.

The great room boasts a stunning peaked ceiling adorned with espresso-stained wooden planks, accentuated by recessed lighting and a large ceiling fan. 

Meanwhile, the kitchen ceiling features drywall, complemented by recessed and dropped lighting fixtures, enhancing its functionality and style.

Great Room

The focal point of the great room is a fireplace, encased by stone on the lower section and natural wood extending from the mantle to the ceiling. 

It includes an outlet designed for easy TV mounting.


The showcased photo displays the kitchen in its final stages, featuring a brick accent wall, dark cabinetry, a sliding window above the sink, and an additional slender window above it.

The unique and stunning copper farmhouse sink was sourced from a copper shop located in Southern Indiana.

The butler’s kitchen/pantry boasts a coffee station, a captivating stone accent wall, a wine fridge, a sink, and a blend of open shelving and cabinetry.
